STAY | Gwithian Beach Houses - Gwithian, Cornwall

We have stayed in the Gwithian area of Cornwall many times over the past few years. We return because the location is fantastic - so close to the sea, but also a perfect base from which to explore the far West of Cornwall.

Last month, we spent a glorious sun-bathed fortnight staying at one of the Gwithian Beach Houses; located on Gwithian sands, a small family-run chalet park of 30 individual wooden holiday homes.

The chalets are nestled next to the grassy sand dunes; just a stone's throw from three miles of beautiful sandy beaches, between Hayle and Godrevy Point.

INTERIORS | Task Lighting - A collaboration with First Choice Lighting

As our home starts to take shape, I've been on the hunt for stylish task lighting.

I have a small studio/office upstairs, which is yet to be renovated. The light can be too overpowering from the pendant light overhead, so I need something to illuminate specific tasks at my desk, without bathing the whole room in light.

This room will be the last to be overhauled as we have the main living/dining space to finish and a bathroom to refit. Despite the room not being complete just yet, I still like to look for the finishing touches.

INTERIORS | Our Kitchen Renovation - An Update

I last wrote a blog post about our renovation back in August. Although I haven't posted here, we have been working on the house pretty much every weekend since then.

We have gone for an understated, modern look in the kitchen; with white units (very similar to those pictured above), pale oak worktops and white matt wall tiles. We have also added some luxury with a pale grey veined marble floor with underfloor heating beneath.
